Adjusting shut lines
To be able to adjust shut lines correctly, bolts -2-, -3-, -6-and -7- in A-pillar must be loosened.
–  In order to gain access to bolt -3- on driver side, detach fuse box, and lower it → Electrical system; Rep. gr.97.
–  In order to gain access to bolt -3- on front passenger side, remove glove compartment → General body repairs, interior; Rep. gr.68.
–  For loosening bolt -6-, lower A-pillar trim must be removed → General body repairs, interior; Rep. gr.70.
Adjusting for flush fitting
In order to adjust flushness correctly, bolts -5- and -9- must be loosened.
